Default Screaming Eagle RC

I've been out of combat competition for some time now, however still flying combat every other weekend or so.
My web page got a little rusty but my planes didn't get dusty!

although still under construction, My page is still operational.

Bandits and GoDevils are still battling in the AZ sky's

Beer is GOOD!

OK...so I have 3 combat planes....Bandit, GoDevil and Bandito
The Bandit and GoDevil have foam wings, a selig airfoil and both aircraft use the same wing. They have been flying since 2002 and 2004 respectively.

Wings are 64" span, the engine mount opening is standard to fit an OS .25 FX. Both aircraft use 3 servos, usually 2 standard and one mini servo for the throttle.
Both the Bandit and GoDevil are under the 3 1/2 LB weight limit.

The Bandito was Designed for SSC back when SSC began, It also uses a 64" foam wing, uses an E203 airfoil and was designed around the LA .15 or equivalent.

All of the aircraft use HDPE for the fuselage.

I will add the specs to the web page...I'm still adding the aircraft right now

Hi Stan, good to see you online. I remember the Bandit well as I used them for a couple of seasons. Great flying and durable. Been thinking about getting back into the game now that my boys (twin 10 yr olds) are showing some interest. In 2004, we scaled down a Bandit to 1/2A size and made the Locust. 20 rounds of combat in one day... LOL

Hi Chris!
Good to hear from you!....Glad you are well! We have a group flying in Tucson, and itching to get into a contest...My last real contest was 2008 Dixie NATS. Was a good time!

My girls (also twins) turned 18 this year....it happens fast!

Where did all of the combat veterans go?

All the veterans burned out! Rules creep and too many classes to build for. When did you move to AZ? We've been in NC for a just over 2 years now. Just moved into a new house that we had built last month.

Still have the awards from the 2006 Dixie Nats on my wall. Good times for sure. Andy Panoncillo is trying to convince me to go to the 2016 AMA NATs. Would need some new airframes for that.

Those were good times for sure...we just had Open B and scale. I believe that's missing.
we are flying B here in Tucson. We are having a blast!...not too many rules. =-)

Tell Andy to win one for the monster nation....LOL (youtube video) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbd2YjssVF8

+1 on that video. Might have to pick up a Bandit or two from you if they are available.

Ok, I will check out the website. I remember Frank "Smack Daddy"... fond memories of me cutting his wet noodle airplane in half with my Predator. LOL

What servos are you using for throttle, elev and ailerons on the bandits? I will go with Magnum .25's for power. Will the Bandito be making a comeback?

I ran across an extra Go Devil wing, didn't realize I had one left. Could you tell me the CG for Go Devil?
